Growing Up in the Universe

Oxford professor Richard Dawkins presents a series of lectures on life, the universe, and our place in it. With brilliance and clarity, Dawkins unravels an educational gem that will mesmerize young and old alike. Illuminating demonstrations, wildlife, virtual reality, and special guests (including Douglas Adams) all combine to make this collection a timeless classic.

Thanks to the help of many volunteers, RDFRS is proud to announce the release of a new edition of the ‘Growing Up in the Universe’ 2-DVD set with subtitles in English, Spanish, French and Polish! The DVDs have a new root language menu, designed to allow easy navigation to each language.

The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children were founded by Michael Faraday in 1825, with himself as the inaugural lecturer. The 1991 lecturer was Richard Dawkins whose five one-hour lectures, originally televised by the BBC, are now available for the first time on DVD, courtesy of RDF.

“You can only buy this DVD from one source. Buy two. One for you and your family and one for your school. Trust me, they are superb… Please, I urge you to buy this.”
